An iWitness 7 viewer sent us the video.

During the walk, they honored Aiden Clark, the 11-year-old boy who died in a bus crash on the first day of school last August.

The video shows the line leader holding a photo of Aiden, and all the students wore t-shirts with Aiden’s name on the sleeve.

A viewer told News Center 7 that the shirt said, “Forever in our hearts.”

A shirt was signed and given to the Clark family at the farewell.
